First Impressions: Huawei Honor 3C

Huawei Honor 3C

The Huawei Honor 3C is a 5-inch Android smartphone. It just arrived MOBILITY Towers and is looking good to go. A few key specs first.

  • Android v4.2.2 (Jelly Bean)
  • 5.0-inch, 720×1280 pixel LCD display (294 PPI pixel density)
  • 1.3 GHz Mediatek MT6582 Quad-core processor
  • Mali-400MP2 GPU
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 8 MP rear Camera, 5 MP front-facing camera
  • Dual SIM (Micro-SIM, dual stand-by)
  • 3G, WiFi, DLNA
  • Internal storage: 4 8 GB
  • Memory card support: up to 32 GB
  • 2300 mAh Li-Polymer battery

When I picked up the 3C, it felt so surprisingly light. It is all plastic, of course, but has a nice look and feel to it. It is also comfortable in the hand and suitable to one hand use (at least, for my big hands). Smaller hands may find it a bit of a stretch. Software-wise, Huawei has laid its own very nice and smooth Emotion UI over the Android user interface. The result is beautiful.

Huawei’s Emotion UI eliminates the app drawer, and places all your apps on the home screen. It simplifies the Android user interface and experience. I think I like it.

I will be using it as my daily driver for a while, and you can expect my usual reviews and feature articles. If you have any questions, please do ask away. Cheers.


  1. the absence of an app drawer is a minus for me. Flyme’s Color UI does the same thing, all in an attempt to marry Android to iOS. what’s Huawei’s track record with OTA updates? cos Jelly Bean 4.2’s dated

  2. I’m not looking for the app drawer. The fact that the machine is up to 4.2 Android tech with 2 GB RAM , then it only gets better

  3. If this is the 2GB RAM version, then internal storage should be 8GB. Can you please confirm and the total accessible memory.

  4. Mr. Mo.
    How often has it crashed and/ or rebooted without warning.
    Think Infinix phones and you’ll get the picture…..

  5. I think with 2GB of RAM, this device is set to be a winner if it should launch in this country with that price of 45K. Every other thing matches or betters the Tecno Phantom A+ specs apart from the bigger screen and the camera mega pixel counts but Huawei being a bigger player may be able to match or even beat the Phantom A+ camera output.

  6. Sorry, I mean to say the Tecno Phantom AIII and not the A+ in the above comment
